This chapter reconsiders the notion of the good, the true, and the beautiful for music education in our time, inspired by the writings of Byung-Chul Han, Michel Foucault, Iris Murdoch, Axel Honneth, and Martin Heidegger. This classical notion is imagined as a garden in which to dwell philosophically and to be used as an inspiration for music teachers’ pursuit of happiness, authenticity, and liberty. The chapter departs from, plays with, and extends ideas from Jorgensen’s Transforming Music Education (2003).
